Many of you may recall just what big fans we are of Buck Howdy.
One of my VERY FIRST blog posts (all those years ago) mentioned Buck Howdy. You can read it HERE. After that published, Buck Howdy got in touch with us (how he found that post, I don't have any idea) and sent us a bunch of cd's, bandanas and, while sweet, he could have left the harmonica's at home.
Last year, Buck was gracious enough to give a FREE concert at the library I work for. You can read all about that and the view the pictures of that great event HERE.
This year, on JUNE 21st, Buck Howdy is coming back to play a little concert at the library for us again. (If you live in my area, email me and I would be happy to send you the details.)
To say I am thrilled would be an understatement.
But there is more.....
Buck's real name (really, did you think his parents named him Buck Howdy???) is Steve Vaus.
Steve has been in the music industry for a long time.
He is just finishing his new Gospel cd, which you can learn more about at his website, and when he is in town for the kid's Buck Howdy concert, he is giving another free concert later that night at a local church with his new Gospel music.
I have not heard the new Gospel cd yet, but I have watched the video explaining his heart on this album. I have been able to listen to a few of the songs. One I really liked and said, "Hey, I don't remember hearing that one before but it's familiar too."
He wrote back, "It's because I just wrote it."
Music so good that you think you know it but it is all new. That to me is a great song writer.
To celebrate the fact that my friend is coming into my little town to do TWO concerts, I thought I would do a give away.
I have Buck's American Dream's cd. It's filled with patriotic songs that young and old would enjoy. It IS signed, as well, though the signature is faint. The cd is open (so it could be signed) but never played.
Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite Patriotic song, Gospel song or Buck Howdy song.
